KBRA just released its 2021 Sector Outlook: CMBS: Slow and Steady report. As the real estate finance industry grapples with increased infection rates approaching the holiday season and how to think about 2021, MBA NewsLink sat down with KBRA’s Patrick McQuinn and Sacheen Shah to get their insights.
Freddie Mac’s K series quietly holds a place as an important, innovative multifamily market solution that has served borrowers, lenders, tenants and bondholders extremely well since its inception. Importantly for a government-sponsored entity, it also serves as a mechanism to transfer risk away from taxpayers.
As COVID-19 and government responses continue to drive uncertainty around outcomes and outlooks, MBA Newslink interviewed senior professionals from a credit rating agency and several highly rated servicers to get their perspective on forbearance, loan workouts and portfolio management challenges for agency and non-agency CMBS.
MBA NewsLink interviewed Jeffrey O’Neale, a partner in Mayer Brown’s Charlotte office and a member of the Real Estate Markets practice. A primary focus of his practice is representing special servicers in loan workouts, restructurings and modifications and repurchase facility buyers in the servicing and administration of their commercial mortgage loan portfolios.
